who never die....

I love this picture. I had climbed a watchtower to shoot the skydiving show at pune racecourse, when I turned back to take a look at the viewers gallery, I spotted these soldiers watching their colleagues jumping out of the planes. The expressions on their faces caught me and I did not waste a moment to shoot them from where I was, I knew if I budge to make my frame better I will never get those expressions. I was happy that the obstructions did least to spoil the essence of the picture.

You know, as a kid, I always wanted to be a soldier. Whenever I saw soldiers, I tried to get near them to have a closer look. I even managed to get one soldier cap, which I used to wear and feel like a soldier. Even today I am so fascinated by that olive green uniform. There has always been one in me, who will never die….my salutes to them…
